Crucial Expands Server Memory Portfolio with First 32GB NVDIMM Offering
New higher density module supports memory-intensive applications, enabling better server performance
SYDNEY, 31 October 2018 – Crucial®, a leading global consumer brand of Micron Technology for memory and storage upgrades, today announced a new 32GB Nonvolatile DIMM (NVDIMM) to help companies preserve critical data in the event of a system power loss and limit costly downtime. The first Crucial NVDIMM to operate at 2933 MT/s, the new module provides companies powerful and persistent memory performance while reducing the amount of NVDIMMs needed in a server.
In fast-paced business environments, sales and customer satisfaction are decided in milliseconds. Crucial NVDIMMs give organizations the advantage when data transactions hang in the balance by fusing memory with on-module NAND, providing near-instant access with data persistence. In the event of a system power loss, the NVDIMM would back up DRAM data to the NAND with help from an ultracapacitator, its backup power source. Crucial NVDIMMs are compatible with the latest 2.5 inch drive bay and HHHL PCIe AgigA Tech® PowerGEM® ultracapacitors, enabling continual power to up to four NVDIMMs during power loss until a backup is completed.
With the latest Crucial NVDIMMs, users can also remove input/output bottlenecks that hold servers back, and increase the performance of demanding server applications. Today’s applications consistently require faster backup and restore times, making Crucial NVDIMMs ideal for server applications such as big data analytics, relational databases, storage appliances, virtual desktop infrastructure, and in-memory databases.
“With ever-growing data sets, poor application performance can drastically impact a company’s ability to access that data,” said Teresa Kelley, VP & GM, Micron Consumer Products Group. “Our new NVDIMM is a high-capacity persistent memory solution that enables system architects to get near-instant access to data, maximize memory performance, and get the most out of their servers.”
With module densities up to 32GB and speeds up to 2933 MT/s, Crucial NVDIMMs are compatible with OEM servers and warranties, and backed by the Reliance Program. The modules and compatible ultracapacitors are available for purchase through select global distributors. All Crucial memory is backed by a limited lifetime warranty.
